    Mr David Mallia
    CFO, DAN Europe Foundation
  • When Shireburn launched their Cloud based Indigo Payroll we were more than happy to move away from their on premise Shireburn Payroll System (SPS) and onto the new technology. Shireburn Indigo Payroll provides an Employee Portal that not only gives our staff the flexibility to securely apply for leave online, but they can also view their leave balances, download their past payslips and FS3s amongst other functions. The leave authorisation hierarchy, through a drag and drop organisational chart, is so much easier to maintain in our fast-changing and dynamic environment. On top of that, Indigo interfaces directly with BambooHR – a world leading HR management tool – and this has saved us a lot of work related to integrating our payroll and HR related data. Based on our experience, we highly recommend using Shireburn Indigo Payroll.

    Human Resources Manager, Catena Media
  • We had been using Shireburn’s Payroll System (SPS) for two years and were always pleased with Shireburn’s system and support service. Once they launched the cloud version Shireburn Indigo Payroll we immediately took the decision to upgrade to the newer system as it came with an employee portal.
    The employee portal offered a leave management solution whereby all our staff would login to apply for leave, view their leave balances and view whom of their colleagues are out on leave. Compliance was further simplified as employees were able to download their payslips and FS3’s. Having this portal in place has relieved the HR department of a lot of administration work. Combined with a smooth transition from SPS to Indigo, I am pleased to announce that we are delighted with our decision to switch.

At Med Logistics, we use the Shireburn Freight System to manage our operations, in conjunction with the Shireburn Financial Manager for all our accounting requirements.

  • We’ve been using SIMS inventory management, SFM financial management, and SPS payroll software for over 25 years and as part of recent modernisation of its systems, the Group has also adopted Shireburn’s web-based Indigo Payroll application.

    Indigo enables employees to have their own personal portal in which they can view payslips and manage their leave entitlement through a calendar. Staff can view the leave booked by their team members, which enables them to plan their own leave to avoid overlapping. As one gets accustomed to Indigo, its functionality becomes easier to administer and one appreciates the simplified import and export functions.

    Moreover, Shireburn’s consistent customer service is top-notch. They provide immediate assistance and take our feedback into consideration, even incorporating it into updates of the system itself. We are very pleased to work with Shireburn’s team.

  • This year we took the decision to switch from the Shireburn Payroll System (SPS) to Shireburn Indigo Payroll. Amongst the many aspects that drew us towards the new platform, the critical features that have been time and cost saving functions to us have been the much better filtering techniques, enabling us to sort through employee profiles faster, the more flexible reports exportable to Excel, and undoubtedly the employee portal allowing employees to view their own leave balances instead of resorting to the HR team for frequent updates. Very pleased with the system and we look forward to continuing to work with the excellent Shireburn support team.

  • Dizz Group have been long standing users of Shireburn Software since 2009, both for accounting as well as payroll software. Over the past 6 months, we embarked on a project with Shireburn to migrate our 20 retail outlets to the POS system. Now, we also switched from the on-premise Shireburn Payroll System (SPS) to their newer Shireburn Indigo Payroll which is cloud-based. We worked smoothly with the Shireburn team and got this going. Even after just a couple of months using Shireburn Indigo Payroll, we can already see the benefits. Being web-based, we can access the system and work from anywhere. In particular, the Employee Details screens and the step by step Payroll Calculation Process are extremely user-friendly and fantastic to work with. The reporting functionality is also an improvement from SPS, with special regard to the payroll report that is so much easier to filter and issue. We’re very satisfied with our decision to migrate.
